Exploration of the Periodic Table using sound beam technology – a science & art project

Created by John Bradford

What was the school trying to achieve?

Excited by the suggested curriculum opportunities in the new Secondary Curriculum for Art and Design this project set out to place particular emphasis on planning and organising a curriculum out of normal teaching hours to; a) work collaboratively, b) explore areas new to students and teachers, c) engage in interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary practise and d) make links between art and design and other subjects and areas of the curriculum.

Staff also wanted to explore further the impact digital technology has on the quality of learning. Using new technologies such as digital photography, animation and the sound beam has allowed for innovative methodologies for teaching and learning.

The overall aim was to promote creativity through planned extra-curricular interdisciplinary teaching and learning, using new technologies.
